About

I am married with 2 wonderful children, and 2 awesome grandkids. I was an avid cross stitcher for years, and loved working with beads in my projects. Then, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, and couldn't sit with my head down for long periods of time. It began to be clear that I needed a new hobby, so I started thinking about what type of hobby would still allow me to create beautiful things, without causing my body pain.

The idea to start making jewelry came to me when a friend asked me to find her an ankle bracelet while I was on a trip visiting family in Arizona.

I had such a great time choosing the beads and creating the perfect anklet for her, that I decided to make jewelry making my new hobby! I began making one of a kind jewelry to give away as gifts to friends, family, and coworkers. Since then, I have taken several jewelry making classes, and learned which types of beads and wires are the best to use for different types of projects.

After several years of giving away my creations, and creating hundreds of custom pieces for my friends and family to give away as gifts, I decided to open a shop to share my creations with others. And here I am!

My one-of-a-kind jewelry is all made by hand, using high quality beads, wires, and clasps. I hope you enjoy it!
